I mentioned on Monday that the walk to campus is about three kilometres (around 23 minutes). The bus ride to university is 86 cents (or $1.72 there and back), so walking saves me over $80 dollars in twelve weeks (four days of class each week).
But that’s not the interesting part. The interesting part is the distance walked over twelve weeks. Here’s the simple math formula:
Distance walked: 6 kilometres per day x 4 days per week x 12 weeks = 288 kilometres
Time spent walking: 46 minutes per day x 4 days per week x 12 weeks = 36.8 hours
288 kilometres is the distance from Fishkill, NY to Boston, MA. I have a good amount of walking ahead of me.
